True Cyan (No Nay Never) Impresses On Debut At Newmarket

Impressive Newcomer Completes Juvenile Double For No Nay Never

True Cyan (2f No Nay Never - Realtra, by Dark Angel) emerged as an exciting prospect when making an impressive debut in Saturday’s fillies’ maiden at Newmarket.

The £150,000 breeze-up buy was one of 17 to line up for the seven furlong maiden, with David Egan taking the ride aboard Roger Varian’s newcomer. Settled towards the back of the field, she began to make headway from two furlongs out and was pushed along to lead approaching the final furlong. Running on well, she led by a length and a half on the line

“True Cyan has just clinked into gear nicely in the last fortnight,” the winning trainer later revealed. “She can obviously gallop and won really well. She's got the option of going for a novice or the Oh So Sharp Stakes, but that race comes quite quickly and whether she runs again this year depends on how she comes out of the race.”

Owned by KHK Racing, True Cyan completed a smart juvenile double on the day for No Nay Never, with Otto Flash (2c No Nay Never - Lady Corsica, by Galileo) having gotten off the mark on his second start at Haydock.

Karl Burke’s charge was well-supported in the market ahead of the mile maiden and was ridden prominently by Shane Gray. Producing a challenge approaching the final furlong, he rallied to lead close home and kept on to beat the favourite by a length and a quarter.

Owned by Zhang Yuesheng, Otto Flash was bred by M Enright out of an unraced sister to Grade 1 victor Deauville (Galileo).
